After a whirlwind summer that took Jeremy Lin around the world, the Rockets' point guard is now back in Houston ready to get to work with his new teammates.

Lin met with the Houston media today -- his first such appearance Stateside since his introductory press conference in July -- and what follows is a transcript of the event.

Is this a reminder of how crazy things can get?

JL: No, I was in Asia and this is nothing compared to Asia. Just kidding. It's good to be back and good to be back in Houston.

What was it like in Asia?

JL: It was just busy. There were a lot of different things going on. I had a lot of fun, and now fun time is kind of over and (it's time to get) back into practicing and getting ready for training camp.
